"Orbeliani Square will be one of Tbilisi’s most beautiful areas”, promises Mayor of Georgia’s capital Kakha Kaladze, who visited the construction site today to inspect how the rehabilitation works are undergoing.
Currently, two buildings are being dismantled on Orbeliani Square, where later a new one will be built.
Meanwhile, construction rehabilitation has finished on Mtkvari and Virsaladze streets where underground communications were arranged and also a new cover of asphalt was laid.
The rapid and major transformation of Orbeliani Square started in December of last year. This is the second state of the New Tiflis project, which launched in 2016 when the Government of Georgia renovated 45 addresses on Aghmashenebeli Avenue in the Marjanishvili neighborhood.
This time, the rehabilitation site covers Atoneli, Virsaladze, Pkhovi, Treasury, Bridge, Purtseladze and Tabukashvili Streets, where the rehabilitation of underground engineering communications’ systems is underway. In total 18 buildings will be rehabilitated of which 13 are historical buildings.
The first stage of the project includes the renewal of drainage, wastewater, sewage and water supply systems as well as the refurbishment of gas and electric supply systems.
The next stage of the project includes the restoration-rehabilitation of buildings and the construction of an underground parking lot, which will commence after all underground engineering communications’ systems will have been rehabilitated.
The rehabilitation of Grigol Orbeliani Square and its adjacent areas will cost about 55 million GEL in total and is due to be finished by the end of 2018.
